Please help me in making a difference to a few lives in the homeless community of NYC. Please donate $10, $20, $50, the cost of dinner out (just cook at home), half of you bar tab at happy hour or anything you can.
By choosing to donate to Back on My Feet NYC, you are helping raise critical awareness and funds to make a difference in the lives of our members - the community of homeless men and women that are around us each day and often times forgotten.
The goal of the not-for-profit organization is to get members back on their feet by supporting them emotionally, economically, and physically, while providing them educational and job placement support to empower them to re-join the workforce and get back on their feet!
Essentially, Back on My Feet helps those individuals experiencing homelessness transform their lives through the power of running/walking to begin their journey to the things most of us take for granted - a roof over our heads, food on the table and a source of income to pay for it.
Additionally, some of our BoMF NYC members will be training for the marathon (fully paid for and supported by BoMF) alongside you and me. And together, mile by mile, we can make a difference.
I can empathize with our member/teammates, as I experienced homelessness and felt the scorn that society often pass on this fragile community. But, I was luck, as this occurred as a child / adolescent and although my path took a lot of turns (often times feeling that they were for the worse at the time), I came out with a successful career, friends that I consider family, and a humbling understanding of the fragility of the homeless community that has many obstacles to overcome come.
Also, if you would like to run with some of the members from various mission, and get involved as a volunteer, please call, text, email, IM, or knock on my door.
Thank you in advance for your generous donation and support!
